For completely discharging the remains of storage tanks in a refinery, our customer sought a transportable self-priming pump. The requirements included: ATEX zone 1, suitable for all types of oil and diesel products, gentle product pumping and high suction capacity.
The solution was the Boerger Rotary Lobe Pump as it had already a successful track record in stationary operation. The pump was designed in close cooperation with the operator and corresponding to the high requirements. In particular, priority was placed on the pump control unit with the corresponding monitoring equipment to ensure against dry-run, excess temperatures and pressure, in relation to the local ATEX requirements.
An ATEX variable-speed motor is used as a drive so that the pump output could be continuously adjusted. The chassis and all the components are made to order in-house at Boerger to ensure all the requirements of the customer are fully met.
